Chemistry Collage 

Study chemistry and gain a greater appreciation for God's creation.

The major in chemistry is designed to develop a broad and thorough understanding of the fundamentals of the discipline. A study of chemistry is one of peering into our Lord's "invisible attributes" as He has revealed them through creation, molecules, atoms, and chemical reactions. By so doing, the Christian student will gain a greater appreciation of what God has done for His people.

Conduct scientific research alongside faculty.

Students in the chemistry program at Wisconsin Lutheran have the opportunity to gain experience doing scientific research alongside faulty in Generac Hall, a state-of-the-art facility. Students also collaborate with faculty and student researchers from other programs to give their research additional scope.

Shape the chemistry major to benefit your future.

The chemistry program offers two tracks - Option A is designed for those students wishing to pursue a career in chemical research as a lab technician or to further their education in chemistry graduate studies. The requirements of option A correspond to American Chemical Society certification requirements. Option B is designed for pre-medicine, secondary education and chemistry/business majors. The intent of this option is to give the student a solid background in chemistry that can be applied in a second area of study. Students in either option are encouraged to develop computer programming skills.
